4 stars First an admission.......I was lucky enough to promote Jade Warrior at the Astoria 2 many moons ago. They were kind enough to send me a copy of this album so I could use the artwork. This is the only Jade Warrior album I own so I have no idea how it compares with their earlier material. I have lived with this album for many years now and every time I put it on I'm amazed at how 'modern' sounding it is. Brilliantly produced and well layered. It has much in common with Talk Talk and bands like the Alan Parsons Project. Each track boasts multiple 'parts' and you're never left for long to get tired of a particular passage of music. That's not to say it jumps around needlessly, rather that it ebbs and flows between acoustic reverie, lush orchestrated diversions and proggy flute salad. The vocals suit the music perfectly and the whole feel of the album is of a group of musicians who are relaxed and happy with their's not forced or 'difficult'. Highly recommended.
